I had a very nice chat in the pub a few weeks ago with Rian Hughes, the man who designed the Multiversity poster given away at San Diego Comic Con. In it, he told me some of the decisions he made, how he decided which worlds would go where, how the designs were arrived to and whether or not the source wall is made of people.
Well these ideas, and many many more will be seen in Grant Morrison's own guide to his Multiversity series at DC Comics.
And he's bringing some friends…
